set_metadata and covers
I've looked around for the answer to this and haven't found it, so I thought I'd ask here.
Is there a way to set the cover image other than inside the GUI? I've imported a bunch of metadata for my books using set_metadata, and as far as I can see, I'm able to edit pretty much everything about a book using that command. Except the cover. I can't tell it to use a new image for the cover.
Am I missing something? Did I not RTFM closely enough? How would I go about doing this?

setting covers via metadata is unsupported for most formats, because most formats dont have covers in their metadata (instead they are part of the main text)
